Jobs for Veterans at Paychecks for Patriots Hiring Event

The annual Paychecks for Patriots job fair will soon be held in four cities across Tennessee, including locally in Knoxville, featuring employers with full time positions available for veterans.

Tennessee’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development is hosting Paychecks for Patriots 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Oct. 18, 2016 in the cities of Memphis, Nashville, Clarksville and Knoxville. Dozens of employers are participating, each one vetted to ensure they have available full-time jobs for veterans. Job-seeking veterans can register before the event by going to, or they can do so at the door on the day of the event. Interviews will take place at the event and many positions will be filled on the spot.

Employers are encouraged to apply to sign up prior to Oct. 14. There is no fee to participate in the event.

“Since Paychecks for Patriots started in 2012, veteran unemployment in Tennessee has steadily declined,” the agency said in a release. “While there are fewer veterans currently looking for work, there are still American heroes in the state without jobs and the Agency will continue to work towards finding them jobs.”
